Mumbai: In a major development, Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday arrested Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Chhagan Bhujbal in a money laundering case.
The NCP leader was arrested in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam.
Earlier, in the day, senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal had appeared before Enforcement Directorate for questioning in the money laundering case.
The case was filed against his family in connection with the Maharashtra Sadan scam.
The Maharashtra ACB had earlier filed two FIRs against the Bhujbals and others under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) to probe the Delhi-based Maharashtra Sadan construction scam and the Kalina land grabbing case.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had on February 1 arrested Sameer Bhujbal, the nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal, in a money laundering case in Mumbai after the agency conducted multiple searches in connection with its probe against Bhujbals and others.
